COMMENTS

For Lucas sequences, say, rows in A172236, we are mainly concerned about the periods, ranks and the ratios of the periods to the ranks of them modulo a given integer n. The period of {A172236(k,m) modulo m} is given as A321477(n,k), and the rank, which is defined as the smallest l > 0 such that n divides A172236(k,l), is given as A321476(n,k). T(n,k) is their ratio, which is the multiplicative order of A172236(k,A321476(n,k)+1) modulo n.

T(n,k) has value 1, 2 or 4. This is because A172236(k,m+1)^4 == 1 (mod A172236(k,m)). For n > 2, T(n,k) = 4 iff A321476(n,k) is odd; 1 iff A321476(n,k) is even but not divisible by 4; 2 iff A321476(n,k) is divisible by 4. See A172236 for some further properties.

Let p be an odd prime. If p == 3 (mod 4), the p^e-th row consists of only 1 and 2; if p == 5 (mod 8), the p^e-th row consists of only 1 and 4.
